Oh the dreaded bulb syringe , or the booger sucker as we call it at my house !!! This is a great way to clear your babies nose if they have a cold or allergies or just the normal bit of stuffiness when they are new little ones . I always used a bit of saline nose drops first to help loosen things up a bit . I also found if you plug one side while you suck out the other side it seems to help get more out quickly .
